It's an Aussie icon - as Aussie as a meat pie and sauce as a backyard barbie or a day at the beach. Akubra is the iconic Australian bush hat brand and is still Australian owned (in the 4th generation) and Australian made - the family have been making hats since 1900 ... many try to emulate this traditional hat but there is only one Akubra.
The Rough Rider is Akubras most popular Western hat. The hat is a western style with a lower, more traditional Australian medium crown which will please both types of hat users. The brim is pre-moulded to be slightly raised on a refined sharper angle for true style.
Fully satin lined inner and shaped with raw edge; the hatband is plaited horse hair with two tassles. Made from Akubra's imperial quality pure fur felt and reeded roan leather sweatband. Like all Akubra'r this hat is made from pure fur felt, a premium material and with all Akubra's is as tough as nails and as with a good wine it gets better with age and takes on it's own character.</p>
With Aussies spending so much time in the outdoors we need to be protected fom both the harsh sun and the driving rain experienced in our rugged country - that is why Akubra is the number one choice for not only protection but also style and durability - we give them a beating and the Akubra stands the test of time. You can wear your Akubra with confidence, it's more than just a hat it's an Australian Icon.
